Fossil fuels-oil, coal, and natural gas-are running out quickly, and since much of the world's power depends on these resources, in the next few hundred years this could be a major problem. However, if we aren't more careful about the way we use these natural resources, we won't have to worry about that; the world won't survive that long. The burning of fossil fuels pollute the environment in many ways, including contributing to the greenhouse effect and producing harmful by-products that are... Topics: fossil fuels, acid rain
Author Mike Tidwell in The Ravaging Tide argues that more Katrinas are in our future but that we can arrest climate change by quickly breaking the fossil fuel habit. Topics: warming, climate, fossil fuels
The burning of fossil fuels pollute the environment in many ways, including contributing to the greenhouse effect and producing harmful by-products that are dangerous to our health. One of these side effects, which causes the majority of the damage to the ecosystem, is acid rain. Topics: fossil fuels, acid rain

The articles in this section describe much of what is wrong with present agricultural and energy practices. They are intended to be read as critiques, and indeed they are, but not to be interpreted as endpoints in our thinking. We have tried, at New Alchemy, to shift our intellectual paradigm until these problems no longer loom as insuperable, but rather become a touchstone for biological approaches to agriculture and energy.

National Fuel Gas (NFG) proposes to build a gigantic 22,000 H.P. compressor station in Pendelton NY. The compressor will be near residential neighborhoods and a school. A local activist group, The Pendelton Action Team, weighs in on this proposal.More info: www.PendeltonActionTeam.com orfacebook: PendeltonActionTeam Topics: fossil fuels, methane, natural gas
The biofuels movement is propelled by the powerful myth of progress; the myth that with the right technology, the right machines, the right fuel, we can go on living as we currently live. The myth of progress represents horrible misunderstanding of our past, and it equally misunderstand the future. Rather than leading to an age of renewable fuel, the biofuel movement is more likely to be the seed of a global scale genocide.

Leading US climate scientist and director of NASA, Dr James Hansen, has made it clear that "preservation of climate requires that most remaining fossil fuel carbon is never emitted to the atmosphere" and that "the only realistic way to sharply curtail CO2 emissions is to phase out coal use except where CO2 is captured and sequestered." Over the last six months Hansen has taken the unusual step of writing in a personal capacity to various heads of states asking them to bring...

According to a study by Richard Unger and John Thistle, Canadians consumed 430 petajoules of energy in 1867. Combining energy from animal labour, food, firewood, wind, water, coal, crude oil, natural gas and electricity, by 2004 Canadians reached a historic peak of energy consumption at 11,526 petajoules. For reference, a petajoule is a unit of energy measurement roughly equivalent to 31.6 million cubic metres of natural gas or 277.78 million kilowatt hours of electricity. Since Confederation,...
